Pamper yourself - a consultation with Your Style will empower you to look your best.

You will be equipped with an 'appearance life skills kit' including colour swatches and a streamlined personal checklist for shopping.

Do you wonder What Not to Wear? What is right for you? The answers will be revealed by scientific analysis - without a tape measure on you. This has nothing to do with weight. It is about bone structure and proportion. And you can keep your clothes on!

  • personalised notes and complimentary email follow-up.
  • $230.00 GST inclusive

“Susan’s advice is down to-earth, practical and empowering, and I did not have to replace my whole wardrobe.” - Kenina, Albany

Colours Consultation Auckland New Zealand“Having my colours done has given me a heightened awareness to colour. It’s amazing 'seeing' colours that I didn't notice (or chose not to!) before.” - Heather, National Park

“Thanks for your efforts and time, Susan, it was most appreciated. The Colours Consultation was quite productive and rewarding. Productive in the sense that I will not waste time and money on clothing that is clearly unsuited to me now, and rewarding in that I actually feel more comfortable with the attire I have. I enjoyed working with you as you made the process very easy and relaxed. You were well prepared, professional and have superb interpersonal skills whilst obviously maintaining a discreet and friendly service.” - Robert, Wellington


Are you suffering from CCS (Clogged Closet Syndrome)? If your wardrobe is better organised, you can make more imaginative choices. Most of us wear only 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time. Why hang on to the 80% you do not wear?

Susan will:

  • clear out the clutter, simplify and organise your wardrobe
  • show you new ways of wearing existing pieces
  • explain why some clothes are past their 'use by' date.

    $115.00 per hour plus mileage fee to your home, or you can bring your clothes to my Parnell studio. This service is carried out with sensitivity - yes, you can keep the heart-connected pieces.

“When I looked at the pile of clothes that Susan wisely eliminated from
my wardrobe, because I hated wearing them, I realised I could have had
the sports car of my dreams, instead of a wardrobe of disasters.”
- Pauline, Royal Oak, Auckland

“You made me look at my wardrobe differently. Less is more, that is how I like to furnish my home and garden, so that is how I am going to furnish myself but with a bit of fun also.”
- Robyn, Mt Eden, Auckland

Personal shopping service with Auckland fashion image stylist Susan AxfordPERSONAL SHOPPING IS CLEVER SHOPPING

No time to shop, can’t find the right outfit?

With Susan’s comprehensive knowledge of labels in all price ranges from chain store to designer labels, you will choose with confidence from off-the-rack or tailored garments. This is clever shopping. Make Your Style your fashion accessory - the must-have item each season that you cannot afford to be without.

Enjoy a personal shopping service that will save you time and money. Susan will accompany you to show you how to wardrobe shop and select items for you to try, and run in and out of the changing room for you.

You will love what you buy! Susan even does the driving, so there is nothing for you to think about, except your clothing choices. It’s all about you.

“Thank you for the shopping trip. I could not believe how hard you work
- running backwards and forwards, picking up and putting down, thinking
about all those clothes - I didn’t even have to think about where to park.
It was a fantastic experience and I love all the clothes we bought.”
- Janet, Browns Bay, North Shore

“I loved every minute of our shopping trip and still can’t believe we put it all together in just a few hours. It is your eye and energy that really makes it happen. I saw you on TV last night and couldn’t help but think how professional you are and how very lucky I am that you are my style master.”
- Jean, Mairangi Bay, North Shore

“Thank you so much for your fresh ideas, insights and heading me in the right direction. When I look at the shops now I am far more disciplined and have a much clearer idea of what I am looking for and the detail I require. This is wonderful!”
- Nora, Parnell, Auckland City

“I could not believe the difference Susan’s choice of lipstick and accessories made to me in a couple of hours. The improvement was instantaneous.” - Chris, Melbourne
